Banned on Twitter

It seems that these days you can be sent to Facebook or Twitter “jail” for merely stating scientific facts or bedrock judicial principles. Or you could lose your job entirely. Who would do such a thing?

The enhanced unemployment benefits due to the COVID pandemic can have a downside that, in the long run, will hurt the workers it’s supposed to be protecting. But there is a better way, if Democrats can get on board.

DON’T do this!

The trend these days is to bring politics into everything; into chicken sandwiches, airlines, pillows, baseball, and many other area where we don’t need it.

We don’t need it because all it’s doing is widening the political divide. I’ll give 2 examples of it in this episode; Delta Airlines and Major League Baseball, and their reactions to the Georgia election law recently passed.

And I weigh in with a short statement on the Derek Chauvin verdicts.

The Surge

Why is there suddenly a massive surge of immigrants rushing to the southern border? Well, it turns out that the answer is pretty simple; people respond to incentives.

You may have thought that Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop was back to business as usual after his Supreme Court decision. Not so fast.

Kids in cages, or something else?

Did you know terrorists keep office hours? No? Well just ask Merrick Garland, former Supreme Court nominee and current Attorney General nominee. He’ll set you straight.

The Washington Post has turned on a dime when describing detention facilities at the border. What a difference an administration makes!

And a cousin of mine had a great observation regarding the track women’s sports have been on in her lifetime.

Rush Limbaugh, RIP

“Impeachment season 2” is now behind us. I give my review of this shortened season (short due to no investigation episodes and because no witnesses were called).

And one of the greats of talk radio, Rush Limbaugh, has passed away. He was a pioneer in his field, bringing conservative views and explaining them in a way that we could all understand them.

Too problematic for San Francisco

So many restrictions that were enforced because of COVID-19 are being lifted, seemingly all at once. Is it a miracle, or is there something else going on?

The San Francisco Board of Education has decided to rename 44 of its schools. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are among those problematic school names, but there are many more that you would not think are a problem (especially when you hear one example of why one of those names is on the list).

Executive Orders are too powerful

Presidents like to tell what they will do in their first 100 days in office, but executive orders make just the first hundred minutes very powerful. Sending out edicts is not what representative government should be, for any political party.

And Joe Biden is no different. I take a look at just a few of his EOs in this episode.

Episode 310: Mob Violence is Always Wrong

Mob violence at the US Capitol

The attack on the Capitol building in Washington, DC was wrong and anyone involved with it should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Vast majorities of both Democrats and Republicans agree with that statement. But if we distill it down to it’s base argument — mob violence is always wrong — the opinions diverge.

In this episode, I talk about why that is, and suggest who might be to blame for normalizing mob violence.

A “personal’ gift?

A boycott turned into a “buy-cot” when what was meant to punish became a way to reward a company.

How about giving a very “personal” gift this year? I’ve got an idea, but just know that I will absolutely not be giving this.

And listener Ryan called 267-CALL-CT-0 and let me know of another news site that gives all sides of an issue.

Illegal immigration trends

When Trump started his term, illegal immigration started to trend down. With Joe Biden the presumptive President-elect, what do you think that trend is doing now?

Politicians make verbal gaffes; it happens all the time. But watch how the media coverage changes depending on the party of the politician.

I’ve found a news source that lets you see how various other sources cover a story based on their bias.
